No matter how good your intentions, most people are late for work at one point or another, with hectic school runs and traffic jams often getting in the way of even the most thoughtful morning routines.

Most of the time, the occasional late start isn’t really a big deal, especially if you arrive just a minute or so after your shift time.

However, as already reported by the daystar, A boss actually seems to take such minor delays very seriously and penalize employees if they are even a minute late to the office.

The extreme rule was shared by a former employee who took a snap of a poster outlining the tough policy.

The former employee described the austere office as “the worst place I’ve ever worked”.

Sharing the image with Reddit, the unnamed former employee writing under the username u/MinionsAndWineMum, blasted the workplace as “the worst place I’ve ever worked” and added that the pay was “minimum wage, of course.”

The sign informs staff of a “new office arrangement” at the unspecified workplace and reads: “For every minute you are late for work, you must work 10 minutes after 6pm.

“For example, if you arrive at 10:02 a.m., you will have to stay 20 minutes longer until 6:20 p.m.”

People were horrified at the sign, with one person responding: “Boy I hope they like paying overtime. . How the hell can people think this is a good idea?”

Another said: “Some people just love exercising their little power. If whoever wrote this note were able to let go of their ego for five minutes, they would realize how hilariously pathetic, petty and sad that is.

“Unfortunately, that’s not the case for whoever works there.”

A third person joked, “If you show up at 9:58 am, are you allowed to leave at 5:40?”
